Benzoyl Peroxide 5% strength is the medication of choice for treating acne. Benzoyl Peroxide is recognized by the American Academy of Dermatology as one of the most effective antibacterial agents proven to significantly reduce the presence of P acne bacteria (the bacteria believed to play a primary role in the inflammatory aspect of the acne process). Many physicians and researchers believe the Benzoyl Peroxide, used in conjunction with a skin care management system, is a potent tool to achieve dramatic clearing of acne lesions and prevent changes within the follicle associated with the acne process.
Benzoyl Peroxide is pharmaceutically produced using formulary guidelines recommended by renowned acne specialists including James Fulton, M.D. and Albert Kligman, M.D. by using highly micronized benzoyl peroxide and special non-comedogenic emollients, this preparation minimizes dryness and irritation, while providing maximum measurable effectiveness.
Size: 4 oz
|Directions||Begin by applying once daily only, preferably in the evening to affected areas, not just each individual lesion. For example, if the patient has acne on the forehead, the medication should be applied to the entire forehead area. Apply Benzoyl Peroxide after the application of all other products. In other words, if the patient is using Bioclear and a combination of other products, the Benzoyl Peroxide should be applied last. Keep away from eye area. Unless the acne is severe, it is generally recommended to begin with the 5% strength in the evening and increase usage to morning as well, if necessary. As skin acclimates, strength may be increased to 10%.|
